/ L60 grand series block heater #1

So I'm in the process of having my tractor assembled but up to this point haven't spec'd a block heater. Gets plenty cold here but tractor will be shedded in an unheated insulated outbuilding. My outside temp yesterday was -8 and my thermometer in the shed read 29 above. I've read where some L60 owners are getting an error code on the dash and no tractor start. My question is do I really need a block heater if I don't start the tractor below 25 degrees? I feel enough can go wrong with modern tractors and don't want to add to the complexity of it's computer system. Not sure if this is a tap in block heater from Kubota or if it threads in? I'd hate to have one blow out one day and go unnoticed and do engine damage before its too late. My thought was I could always throw my forced air propane heater a safe distance from it and blow hot air on it for an hour or so before I'd need to start it??? Anyway just curious what others thoughts are on this subject and if anyone has had problems big or small from having a block heater installed? Thanks in advance for any and all input!
